Despite dominating in the U.K., things are a little different for Barclaycard’s issuing operations in the U.S. Surinder Singh, general manager of U.S. Cards for the bank, explains how partnerships with institutions like Sallie Mae are indicative of the company’s growth strategy in the U.S., which is less about brand and taking players like Chase and Citi head on, and more about working with existing players to provide valuable services.

Listen to the podcast with Surinder Singh below.
